By Mark O. MurphyA few weeks ago, as the NBA Playoffs were kicking off, we were treated to a brief glimpse into what could have been a championship game in Indianapolis.
As a fan, I had been waiting to see how the NBA would handle ankle braces.
For a while, we wondered if the league would allow the players to wear them and whether the NBA had the proper protocols for it.
A few months later, after the Warriors and Raptors took the series in Indiana, we finally got to see the players in action.
In the finals, both Steph Curry and DeMar DeRozan were wearing the brace.
Curry was able to keep his balance during the games.
DeRoshan struggled to get off his shot, and both players struggled with their shot release.
While I still don’t think the brace should be worn during the regular season, the NBA should consider whether it’s necessary for the postseason.
There are several things to consider when considering ankle braces:The brace should never be worn in a game.
In the NBA, players are required to wear a protective shield to protect their ankles and knees from the impact of the ball.
This is why it’s so important that the players wear protective equipment throughout the season.
The brace should only be worn for a specific period of time and not during a game, as it could compromise their posture and create an injury.
For a player to be allowed to wear the brace during a contest, the league has to certify that it will allow the player to do so.
The NBA has a policy that states that a player can wear the ankle brace in a limited period of the game and not for an extended period of an entire contest.
If a player wears the brace for the entire contest, then the NBA has to allow the ankle bracelet to be worn by the player.
This is where the issue of ankle braces and the NBA’s protocol comes into play.
During the regular seasons, it was the policy that the NBA allowed players to be on the court without the brace, but during the postseason, it is up to the league to certify to the NBA that it has protocols for ankle braces during the NBA Finals.
The rules vary between conferences, but the rulebook for the NBA states that “the NBA shall, in all cases, have protocols to ensure the protection of the player’s ankle when playing during a conference championship game.”
This means that the player can be wearing the ankle braces, but they won’t be able to practice during the conference finals.
There are multiple different types of ankle brace that can be worn, and it’s possible that there will be a rule change that allows players to use the brace in the finals.
It is not yet clear if this will be the case in the NBA.
During the Finals, the ankle injury to the Warriors’ Kevin Durant was a major concern for the team.
Durant had to leave the game with a sprained left ankle.
This led to a number of players wearing ankle braces in the Finals.
The Warriors won the game when they were able to secure a 3-2 lead and then took the next two games to close out the series.
Although it is unclear if the ankle issues will continue in the playoffs, there are multiple issues that could happen during a championship series.
If the league does not have a protocol for ankle brace use during the Finals then it could create a situation where a player could miss the entire playoffs if they are wearing a brace in an extended amount of time.
If the players are not able to wear ankle braces because of injury, the players will be unable to practice in an NBA Finals and will not be able access their team.
The players may not be the only ones affected.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said during the press conference after the series that the league is working on a protocol that will allow players to practice without wearing the protective shield.
NBA teams have already been asked to use a brace during training camp, but until that protocol is released, it will be up to teams to decide whether to wear protective gear during the season and during the championship series if necessary.
It is worth noting that the NCAA is also working on the issue.
If the league determines that it does not need to issue any additional rules, then teams will be able wear the protective shields during the NCAA Tournament.
A number of teams have opted to wear their protective gear while wearing the Ankle Bands.
The NBA has decided to not make this decision because it has a protocol to use for players that can not wear the Anklet Bands during the Playoffs.
Although it may be a little early to make any changes, the fact that the rules are in place to allow players without the Anklets to practice is a positive step.
If teams are able to utilize the protective equipment during the series, then it will make it much easier
